Beverly Saville Gardiner, passed away of natural causes. She was born in Salt Lake City where she also spent her childhood. She was the daughter of Walter G. and Della Rigby Saville.

She attended Hawthorne Grade School, Lincoln Junior High, and graduated from South High School at the age of 16.

Beverly met Harold H. (Hal) Gardiner on May 26, 1950, and they were married three-months later on August 26, 1950.

She worked at the Salt Lake Adult School part time while attending high school. Then she worked full time at the Salt Lake Real Estate Board and the Apartment House Association, becoming the secretary to Richard Harding, then Darrel Welling and then Burt Weight.

When Hal was recalled to active duty during the Korean War, she worked at the Army Finance School Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana, as secretary to the Adjutant General, and assistant secretary to the Commandment of the school. Upon their return she became an owner with her husband, and as financial officer of the Gardiner Advertising Agency & Public Relations from 1953-1990. She was also the ad hoc treasurer of the Mutual Advertising Agency Network for several years.

She had great respect for all living things, and as an avid animal lover, she played a valuable part in the establishment and growth of the Utah Branch, Humane Society of Utah (now the Utah Humane Society). They always had dogs living with them at their wooded estate. She also enjoyed baseball (from her early days), and was a New York Yankee fan, and also the Salt Lake Bees.

Traveling was also a favorite and they traveled to many places in the World, the US & Canada. Her pride and joy was her 1957 Ford Thunderbird which Hal gave her for her birthday that year.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband; brother, Raymond Saville; half-brothers, Clifford and Vernon Saville.

She is survived by her sister and many nieces and nephews.
